Prior studies of hypnotic treatment of smoking have reported abstinence rates of between 17 and 88 percent at six months, but few have investigated procedures or forms of suggestions. To compare the effectiveness of positive and negative hypnotic suggestions and self-hypnosis for cessation of smoking, 32 subjects were assigned to one of four treatment groups: (1) negative suggstions alone; (2) negative suggestions plus self-hypnosis; (3) positive suggestions alone; and (4) positive suggestions p...

Monte Carlo methods were used to investigate the effect of misspecification of the second level in a two-level hierarchical linear model (HLM).

[texts]ERIC ED354474: Autonomy as a Predictor of Marital Violence. - ERIC
Recent qualitative investigations of abusive men have indicated that power and control of the wife are central themes in incidents of marital violence. Furthermore, anecdotal and empirical evidence suggest that abusive husbands hold more traditional sex-role stereotypes, are more possessive and jealous, and are more controlling than nonabusive husbands. This study investigated the effects of discrepancies between the affiliation needs of wives and husbands on marital violence...

Interest in physiology/cognition relations is increasing, in step with the realization that the individual ages as a whole, adaptive, living system. If a physiological system declines, a person's cognitive abilities may be reduced, unless some compensatory mechanism operates. Understanding this set of relationships permits potential interventions. This study explored the influences of blood pressure on memory for designs and Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale vocabulary performance in terms of se...

Analysis and theoretical discussion shows that even though strong actors have greater means for using violence, and weak actors are more likely to suffer from the use of violence than strong actors, the motive and opportunity structure of relatively powerless social act...

A theory to explain young people's decisions is developed, proposing that young people choose to go because they find higher education to be both attractive and attainable. A model is then advanced to predict the likelihood of a young person going on to higher education...

It is generally recognized that age, by itself, is not an adequate criterion with which to judge a person's ability to drive. Individuals do not age at the same rate, and there are large intraindividual differences in the aging process. This study, the first phase of a proposed two-phase research project, investigated the relationship of physical fitness to older driver performance by examining descriptively the relative contributions of various measures of cardiorespiratory efficiency, range of...

Discrete-time survival analysis is a new method for educational researchers to employ when looking at the timing of certain educational events. Previous continuous-time methods do not allow for the flexibility inherent in a discrete-time method. Because both time-invariant and time-varying predictor variables can now be used, the interaction of predictors with time becomes a reality. This article presents an approach to interpreting this interaction which involves testing for significance at eac...

[texts]Presentation of Ligands on Hydroxylapatite - Chu, Barbara C. F.
Conjugates of biotin with the decamer of glutamic acid (glu(sub 10)) and the trimer of D,L-2-amino-5-phosphonovaleric acid (I) have been synthesized, and it has been shown that they mediate the binding of avidin to hydroxylapatite. In a similar way a conjugate of methotrexate with glu(sub 10) mediates the binding of dihydrofolate reductase to the mineral. The presentation of ligands on the hydroxylapatite component of bone may find applications in clinical medicine.
